My Holidays highlights

In the Holidays when I woke up I got ready to go to the Glen Dowie Skate park. I went outside and went to my backyard to get my BMX bike but then Lorenzo and Potaua came. I pulled out my bike and rode to the front of the house. I told my Dad that I was going to the Glen Dowie Skate park. Then I told my Dad to come and meet me there. My friends and I biked up the hill and I was so tired when we got next to Sacred Heart School. Then we biked down the hill and we went really fast.

When we got there my Dad was waiting for us. We went to ride on the Skate park and did some tricks. I was trying to do a 360 like Potaua but sometimes I always do 180. I gave my Dad a turn on my bike and he was doing way better tricks than me. After that it started raining so my Dad and I put my bike and Lorenzo’s and Potaua’s bikes in the van. Next we went back to my house and waited for the rain to stop.
